Holding the prestigious NW8 postcode, St John’s Wood is one of the most exclusive and highly sought-after destinations in Greater London. It’s regularly ranked as one of the most expensive places to live, and is one of the most affluent areas in the country.

Its affluence and exclusivity is in large part because it’s maintained a quiet, suburban feel, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Victorian villas and garden-accompanied mansions provide ample living space in a city that’s generally densely populated, and St John’s Wood Church Grounds offers the only nature reserve in the City of Westminster.

St Johns Wood Church

The proximity to luscious green areas like Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill adds to the feeling of tranquility in St John’s Wood, and is another reason why the area attracts professionals, families with children and celebrities alike. Sir Richard Branson and Sir John Major have both lived here, as have a number of musicians like Sir Paul McCartney, Keith Richards and Mark Ronson.

The musical heritage is strong in St John’s Wood, home to the world-famous Abbey Road Recording Studios and the equally iconic zebra crossing that graced the cover of The Beatles’ album Abbey Road. Cricket also has its home here, with a visit to Lord’s Cricket Ground offering an insight into the original global governing body of the sport and a glimpse of the famous Ashes Urn.

Abbey Road Crossing

In spite of its popularity among the rich and famous, St John’s Wood is renowned for its friendly local atmosphere and cosmopolitan feel. Community organisations and business associations are strong in the area, promoting a wealth of independent shops, bars and eateries, as well as events like the Classic and Super Car Pageant and the Christmas Fayre.

Nearby areas like Camden Market and Little Venice provide ample opportunity for exploration and discovery, whilst Paddington Station provides easy rail access for day trips to the south-west and Heathrow Airport.

Nearby Paddington Station offers a great rail service to the south-west and Heathrow Airport, while Chiltern rail services run from Marylebone Station to Aylesbury, Birmingham and beyond. Euston Station is just a short tube journey away too, and both the M1 and M4 motorways are approximately 20 minutes’ drive.

 

Primary and secondary schools in St John’s Wood

 One of the most prestigious educational institutions in the city can be found at St John’s Wood – The American School in London. With an internationally acclaimed reputation and an ‘outstanding’ grade from Ofsted, it teaches an American-style education to children from ages four to 18.

Other prominent independent schools in the area include St John’s Wood Pre-Prep school, for those from ages three to seven, and Abercorn School for those from nursery age right through to age 13. Boys can attend the single-sex Arnold House, while Saint Christina’s independent Catholic school is a popular choice for girls.

There are a number of very good primary and secondary schools close by, including the Quintin Kynaston Community Academy. The London Business School is also within striking distance.

 

History of St John’s Wood

The region to the north-west of central London was originally all part of the Great Middlesex Forest, an ancient wooded area that eventually became a royal forest by the decree of Henry I and Henry II in the 11th century.

It was later divided to make way for roads and agricultural regions, with the area containing present day St John’s Wood passing to an order of the Knights Hospitaller, a medieval Catholic military group. Known as the Order of St John of Jerusalem, it was this ownership that led to the region’s name.

The area wasn’t developed until the 19th century, but when it was, a low-density housing model was adopted, rather than the traditional terraced plan. This meant a focus on many more semi-detached villas and larger mansions with gardens as opposed to terraced housing, and led to a more spacious, highly desirable region known as London’s first suburb.

Despite bomb damage during World War II and infrastructure changes, today St John’s Wood still retains its leafy suburban feel, with much of the region an English Heritage Conservation Area boasting period charm and protected architecture.

Anscombe & Ringland is now Chancellors.

In December 2017, London’s local estate agent, Anscombe & Ringland St. John’s Wood, excitedly announced that it would soon be known as Chancellors St. John’s Wood. The aim of the change was to unite all the brands of the Chancellors Group of Estate Agents under one brand. This enabled us to focus our resources and efforts on a single entity and maximise the support and exposure of all our services for the benefit of customers and clients.

Anscombe & Ringland always had the support and resources of the Chancellors Group, one of the largest independent estate agents in the UK. Being a member of this group formed part of Anscombe & Ringland’s unique marketing strategy, which included a far-reaching network of over 50 branches and 700 other associated agents and a prominent presence both online and on the high street.

This meant that Anscombe & Ringland had access to a considerable database of buyers and tenants which has helped them achieve record results across the region over the years.

If you previously enjoyed the service provided by Anscombe & Ringland St. John’s Wood, you can be assured that it’s only the name we have changed, and you will receive the same great service from Chancellors St. John’s Wood.
